Ciseaux et Bobines by Jardin Prive.
This is the second SAL I was talking about the other day. This one was organized by Noelle
I stitched 1 over 1, hard for my eyes, but I love the result. I had the perfect box waiting for the finishing (it doesn't happen often), it was just waiting for the stitching to be done.
 



Have a great week and happy stitching

I was stitching 2 Jardin Prive SAL simultaneously....The first one is "Patchwork aux chats" I was stitching for my youngest daughter who is crazy about cats. Very nice and fun pattern to stitch. I was asked to finish it as a small pillow....here what I did. Some red fabric to bring out all the colors and a cute charm to add some contrast. 
My second Jardin Prive (shown in my previous post) is done...yeah. 
I will be working on the finishing soon....

Have a beautiful Sunday

 My last post is from 2 months ago....wow....a little bit of stitching, a lot of gardening, some traveling and between, work ;) One of my last stitching post was about Jardin Prive's SAL "Ciseaux et Bobines". 
I am way behind schedule but I am working on it. Here is the progress, I am getting there. 
🌞Have a beautiful Sunday 🌸🌺🌹

I am really trying hard to not start several stitching projects at the same time and I was doing great for a while....and tada... my self control collapsed. I started a Jardin Prive SAL organized by a group of Jardin Prive's lovers. We are stitching Patchwork aux chats. Just fun to stitch.  This is going to be for my youngest daughter who LOVES cats and she picked the colors. 
The other things are an other Jardin Prive and a Sajou/Marie Suarez chart....I will show you those later.

I joggle stitching and gardening now spring is here. I wanted to stitch something pink, girlish, romantic so I picked a chart I had in my drawer for a long time but never stitched. Lecon de Rose by Passion des Croix. Some special stitches (a lot of French knots...don't like those), cross stitch, back stitch and silk ribbon...everything matched my requirement :)
Here it is....

No much stitching the last few weeks for vacation purposes and a beautiful trip to Iceland. 
Back to stitching, I will show you my new project very soon...
Few shots from beautiful Iceland. 
I enjoyed all those beautiful Icelandic sweaters, blankets, yarns....
